Doing the Niche Thing
One of the many cool lessons Pat teaches is how to make niche sites that appeal to a narrow audience, providing a service for free and creating a following (one hopes), that will eventually lead to bigger and better things.
As you know, narrow is not my thing. I don’t think it is ever going to be possible for me to confine myself to a niche site. But I’ve been offered the opportunity to participate in making one, and I think that is going to be a lot of fun.
My awesome friends at Vine Multimedia are experimenting with a site to help people find date ideas, and I’m one of the bloggers who is going to help make it happen! I will be stretching myself to write specific content instead of just following the flow of my own ideas, as I do here. I expect to learn tons about how these things are done, and generally have a good time with other bloggers. Writing can be a lonely job, and this bids fair to be a very social experience. I’m very much looking forward to it.
Launch date is November 1st. I will be doing some promotion here (not a lot – I don’t want to chase you all away). But I’m just so excited at this new project! Stay tuned and travel this new road with me!
